What about just asking the user?

So someone hit pause and play. No one remembers. For now, its some kind 
of invisible recording. If someone hits 'stop' or tries to change 
channels, ask the user 'Continue instant recording?'. If he presses OK, 
make the recording visible. If he presses cancel, delete the recording.


Cheers,

Udo
